Fee Descriptions

Academic Excellence Fee

Used to enhance academic excellence at the University, including the hiring of faculty to teach additional course sections needed to meet student needs, reduction of class sizes to improve the quality of instruction, operation of instructional facilities to serve UNO’s student population, and support services at the heart of the academic enterprise, notably libraries and computing. This fee is $10 per credit hour with a maximum of $120 per semester.

Administrative Fee

Students who withdraw before the 100% refund date of the semester are charged a $50 Administrative fee. In addition, all non-refundable fees (Registration/Late Registration Fee and International Fee) will stay on the student’s account.  After the 100% refund date, only 50% of tuition is refunded, but fees are then nonrefundable.  The Undergraduate Drop Fee ($50 per class) is now assessed instead of the Administrative Drop fee.

Past semester administration fee can be viewed within the Holds, Withdrawal and Fees section of the website on the Administrative Fee Table page.

Audit Course

Tuition and fees for audit classes are the same as enrolling in a credit course. Non-resident students will not be assessed the non-residency fee if the audit course is their only class. Please be aware that certain scholarships may not cover an audit course’s tuition and fees. For any questions regarding scholarships or financial aid, please contact the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office or visit their website.

Building Use Fee

The Building Use Fee is authorized by House Bill 671. This fee shall be used to construct, acquire, repair, maintain, operate, or improve the facilities and physical infrastructure of this university.

Business Differential Fee

A Differential Business Fee of $20.00/credit hour will be charged to all students enrolled in any non-MBA business courses. This fee will be used for a number of purposes, all of which allow the UNO College of Business Administration to improve instructional programs and provide an enhanced academic learning experience in business studies. The majority of this fee will be for direct student support and will be used to both retain current students and attract new students. It will permit the college to acquire new equipment and improve facilities. A portion of the fee-generated revenue will be used to help retain the best faculty members and help attract new high-quality faculty members in the future. A smaller portion of the fee will be used to create a discretionary fund that the Den can use to improve the quality of the business programs as opportunities arise.

Campus Enhancement Fee

Funds will be used to enhance the campus and improve its infrastructure.

During the Fall 2017 semester, the Student Government Association held an open forum in which general support for this fee was expressed. Planned projects include a walkway in the quadrangle area, making the front of the Earl K. Long Library more accessible to pedestrians, and establishing speed control and safety measures on St. Anthony Street. Additional projects will be forthcoming.

Computer Science Differential Fee

A Differential Fee of $35.00/credit hour will be charged to all students enrolled in any courses in Computer Science. This fee will be used for a number of purposes, all of which allow the UNO Computer Science program to improve instructional programs and provide an enhanced academic learning experience. The majority of the fee will support student recruitment and retention activities, including tutoring by graduate teaching assistants and undergraduate peer tutors, continuous lab facilities enhancement and other activities to increase degree completers, undergraduate research programs, graduate assistantships, and small need and merit-based scholarships. The remaining portion of the funds will be used for recruitment and retention of high-quality computer science faculty and staff.

We will dedicate a large portion of the fees towards student retention and student recruitment. Student enrichment sessions and small scholarships on an individual basis may be offered. A substantial portion will also be used for new laboratory equipment that is not covered under the lab fees as these are used for consumables and supplies. A smaller portion will be used to recruit and retain faculty and staff. Finally, a portion of the fees will be used to support student projects, student travel to professional conferences. A 5% will be used at the discretion of the dean to help departments with miscellaneous expenses.

Fuel Recovery (Utility Surcharge)

The fee is used to meet energy costs which exceed the University’s allotted energy budget. All funds collected are restricted and can only be applied to energy costs that exceed the energy budget. These funds are used only after all budgeted state dollars for utilities are expended. Utility costs are monitored in order to adjust the charge up or down as needed.
